The scheduled closing of the Route 233 (Doubling Gap Road) bridge over Conodoquinet Creek in Lower Mifflin and North Newton Townships in Cumberland County has been postponed. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of July 31.
Construction is now expected to begin during the week of August 7 and be complete in late February 2018. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-239 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
